Peripheral Artery Disease and Peripheral Bypass
Peripheral arterial disease refers to all arterial diseases except the heart and brain. In short, it is a disease that occurs when the arteries that supply blood flow to the arms, legs and internal organs are completely or partially blocked due to atherosclerosis.
Causes of Peripheral Artery Disease ?
1- Atherosclerosis causes peripheral vascular disease in two ways:
2- While there should be a rapid increase in the amount of blood and oxygen sent to the tissues when the need for oxygen increases, such as during exercise, atherosclerosis does not allow this increase due to the narrowing of the vessels, and symptoms of disease occur.
Occlusion of an artery due to thrombus and embolism causes sudden oxygen deficiency and malnutrition in the tissue.
